Originally a Viking settlement, Dublin has become the capital of, and most populated city in Ireland. Of interesting note when viewing our Dublin skyline pictures, to see the city has very few tall structures: the vast majority of architecture is under 5 stories in height.
A popular tourist destination is the Dublin City Centre, situated on the Liffey River, and spanned by many iconic bridges. The Halfpenny Bridge - also known as Ha'penny Bridge and Liffey Bridge - is a famous pedestrian bridge built in the early 1800s. The Millennium Bridge is another pedestrian bridge, comparatively recently installed, in December 1999. The landmark Gratten Bridge joins Parliament Street to Capel Street, and was built in the 1600s.
O'Connell Street is another popular destination for tourists, and is also the main thoroughfare. Located in the heart of Dublin, O'Connell Street passes many famous landmarks, including Westmoreland Street, College Green and Dame Street. Positioned on the street is the columned General Post Office Building, location of the Easter Rebellion that led to Ireland's independence from England. Dublin Spire, also known as the Monument of Light, is the most prominent structure seen in many Dublin skyline pictures as a 398 foot tall monument dedicated to Horatio Nelson.
When looking at Dublin skyline photos, it is easy to see how the city was named among the top 30 international destinations. As a historical and contemporary cultural center, the interesting architecture and fascinating views in a Dublin skyline photo are sure to be loved by many.
